How tall would dahlias grow?

My dahlia is growing so tall I can't even reach the top anymore ( I'm 1.65m tall ), is that normal?

    Yes - some of the cactus dahlias will get to about 2m!
    If that's too tall, next year you could pinch out the top of the plant earlier in the year which will make it shorter but a lot bushier

    PS - I should say there are many other varieties that grow to about .5m and all sizes in between
